Letting Go And Grieving The Loss Of An Addiction

Grieving the loss of an addiction is a very common and powerful experience that all too often goes unacknowledged. Once you’re in recovery, it can feel almost blasphemous to talk about the parts of your addiction that made you happy, the things you miss and the things you mourn.

And yet, acknowledging the full reality of your addiction, the good and the bad, can be deeply healing and help you cope with the conflicting emotions so many feel during the recovery process. After all, drugs or alcohol were your constant companion, your coping mechanism, your escape route and your priority for many months, years or even decades.

Find out all you need to know, along with tips and ideas to make the most of this highly important occasion and a step in the right direction for your recovery.

If Only We’d Known… We Need Your Help

Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
If only we knew when we were younger what we know now or could tell someone else!

We obviously can’t change the past, but we can change what we do now and in the future & we need your help!
We want to know what you’d say to yourself or someone else who may be ending up going down the same or similar road to you or a loved one.

We will be producing a “big brother book of advice” which will be given to local schools so that we can try and curve the ever increasing rates of substance use and addiction.
